What the particular offence committed by. each of these individuals was we are not advised, except the general charge of mu nity, or in other words, disobedjnee to, and disregarding the orders of superior officers. All this appears remarkabe enough when it is reccollected that however guilty of that offence these men may have been, they were but follw. ing in footsteps of Coin. More himself; for on he 23d of March last, he had been declared by the Proclamation of President Houston as an outlaw; and that he was acting with out the authority or sanction cf his goverment, but in contempt of it. If ComMoore is suces3 fulinhis expedition he will !yery probally triumph over Gen. Houston" and have his conduct, still sanctioned by the Govermon t of Texas ; but if the principles, and advice laid down by our own great and and good Washington in his .farewell address to his co untrymen are good, (and we all belive they are for this country) then wo are in clined to think that the, course of policy which President Houston jias detertermin ed on pursuing in relation : to'the affair between Mexico and Yucatan is a sound one.

S OffLerrna,May , To the Editors of the Tropic: We got out of river Mississippi on Wednesday the 19th ult., and the same alter-noon made tracks Jcr Telchac where I learned the steamer Montezu ma was alone. On the 21st April, I commenced car ing out the sentences of the Court Martial released Fred'k Shepherd, and pardoned John VV. Williams, who was sentenced to recieve fifty lashes with the cats, but strongly recommended to mercy. 22d, carried into ettect the sentence in the case of W Barrington one hundred lashes with cats. 25th, carred into effect the sentence Edward Keenan, one hundred lashes with the cats, and informed prisoners Antonio Landois. James Hudgins, Isaac Allen, and Williambnnpson,that the Court had sentenced them to death, and that thev would be hung at the Fore Yard the fol- owing day, at Meridian, which was carried into effect on the 26th, at the time appointed, in lat-23 31 N., and ong-38 19 22 W. I herewith enclose you a copy of the minutes of the action, on Saturday 30th April. But one shot struck the Wharton which killed two men and wounded four. Had the wind have been stronger, I would have been enabled to have got nearer. 1 did not open fire upon them until I found that they were widening the distance. The Captain of the Montezu ma was buried at Lerma the next dav. (Monday) we do not of course know the enemv. I saw several shot strike the steamers. and very many fell near them, and in all probability struck them in the rico chet. This is however all coniecture. We have had since a' report from Lerma that eleven were killed, and that the Captain of the Montezuma died of yellow fever. After giving my crew all day Monday, istiuayj to rest, during whicn time the enemy could have approached to within a mile anq a quarter of us had tie chosen: Un Tuesday, at day hsrht, we were under vveinh, standing for hem, but before we got within gun shot they all stood to the N. and W.
